David Wright Calls Out Noah Syndergaard for Eating Lunch in Clubhouse During Intrasquad Game

PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. – David Wright lugged his bats down the dugout steps, trudged through the tunnel and hustled up the entryway to the clubhouse. But he stopped in his tracks at the sight of something he could not abide.

As most of the Mets toiled on the field during an intrasquad scrimmage Tuesday, prized pitching prospect Noah Syndergaard ate lunch in the air-conditioned comfort of the clubhouse.

The faux pas did not sit well with the team captain, who confronted the 22-year-old Syndergaard because he should have been watching the game alongside his teammates.

“Being a young player, any chance you get to learn, you go out there and learn,” Wright told Newsday shortly after the incident.

Syndergaard was not scheduled to pitch in the game, though beforehand, pitchers had been told to be present.

Bobby Parnell, who is in the homestretch of rehab from Tommy John surgery, soon joined Wright in imploring Syndergaard to get back to the dugout.

With Syndergaard’s plate still piled with food, Parnell picked it up and tossed it into a nearby trash can. With the message received, Syndergaard stood and joined his teammates in the dugout, a lesson learned after some clubhouse justice meted out by veterans.

“If a kid’s not playing nice, you take his toys away,” Parnell told Newsday. “When you have a young and impressionable player, and you need to make him understand something that he’s not understanding, you have to be a little forceful.”

Wright’s intent, he told Newsday later, was not to single out Syndergaard. Rather, he believed it important to remind a young player to be mindful about chances to learn.

I think the most important part of this story is not Captain America calling out Syndergaard, it’s big bad Bobby Parnell struttin’ in hot off the surgery table to unleash some fury on the young pup by THROWING HIS FOOD OUT. Just about the most disrespectful thing a man can do to another man.

If this man came over and threw my food out I would literally do anything he requested immediately thereafter.

But if that’s what it takes, then it must be done.

As for the actual situation on hand, there’s two ways to look at it:

1) Syndergaard is being an ungrateful rookie abusing privileges he hasn’t even come close to earning yet. Wright absolutely had to say something and put the guy who’s never made a major league start in his place.

2) D-Wright overreacted and it’s not a big deal. If you think this I couldn’t possibly disagree with you more. And if you disagree with David Wright you disagree with life.

Grow up, Syndergaard. This isn’t you being the all-star on Daddy’s Babe Ruth League team. Be a professional and show Mets fans you actually belong in the bigs.
